West Side Story: The Man, the Music, the Math
Combining lyric opera, jazz, Latin rhythms, symphonic and chamber ensemble forms, ballet, and modern dance, West Side Story is the most complex Broadway show ever created. Jamie Bernstein, narrator, writer, broadcaster, actress, and daughter of Maestro Leonard Bernstein, joins multi-Grammy-nominated drummer, composer, arranger, and educator Bobby Sanabria along with award-winning mathematician and composer Alex Kontorovich to discuss Sanabria's re-envisioning of the show's score in West Side Story Reimagined. The trio will discuss Bernstein and the origins of this 61-year-old masterpiece, the complex mathematics behind the score, and why the story remains so relevant today.
After attending this talk on December 4, listen to the mathematics of Bernstein in action at the live performance on December 8. You can purchase a joint ticket for both events for the discounted price of $55, whlie supplies last. Limited seating available. First come, first served.
